How can we insert symbols in WPS Writer

How can we insert symbols in WPS Writer

When we edit a document, we will inevitably need to enter some symbols that are  not directly entered by the keyboard input method. So, how do we insert the special symbols that we need?

Take this document as an example. We want to tick the tourist attractions  we have visited to facilitate  statistics. Click the position where we want to insert the symbol and  click the Insert tab and the Symbol drop-down button. We can see Recently Used Symbols and Custom Symbols here. These are the symbols that are  frequently used in daily document editing, and we can choose the symbols we need.

In addition, clicking More Symbols will bring up the Symbol dialog box, which contains more symbols. In the Symbols tab, we can select the font we want in Font, so that the corresponding symbol style will be changed as well. In the Subset drop-down button, through the general classification of the symbols, we can quickly locate the approximate position of the desired symbol in the select box. Select the symbols you need, click Insert, and there you have it.

Under the Special Characters tab, we can see some rare symbols, such as Copyright, Registered, Trademark, etc.

In the Custom Symbols tab, we can delete and move the position of the custom symbols. 

For frequently used symbols, we can also set shortcut keys for them by selecting the symbol, typing the shortcut key with the keyboard, and then click specify shortcut Keys.


Under these two tabs, Symbols and Special Characters, there is anInsert to Custom Symbols button. Click this button, then we can place the special symbols that individualsoften use in the drop-down button of Symbols, which is convenient for later editing documents. For all, easy our work with WPS Spreadsheet like Microsoft Excel.
